Deported Terror Suspect Clains Mistreatment

The Swedish Foreign Ministry is to investigate the deportation of a Swede suspected of being a terrorist from the Czech Republic to the USA last month.

The 41 year old, with roots in Lebanon, says he was subjected to illtreatment during his transport to the US. He claims that he was taken to the airport at night, and that on the way to the plane he was put in handcuffs, and forced to wear a blindfold and earplugs.

The Foreign Ministry says it will now look into the man’s accusations.
